REVIEWS

In Michael Grandage’s gentle, churning dream of a revival of Eugene O’Neill’s “Hughie,” which sighed open on Thursday night at the Booth Theater, Erie is portrayed by that excellent actor Forest Whitaker, in a transfixing yet modest Broadway debut. Mr. Whitaker provides all the anchoring physical detail that you might expect from his meticulously observed screen performances (“Bird,” “The Butler”)

------- New York Times
The Oscar-winning actor delivers a most endearing Erie, right down to the nervous giggle he adds to punctuate the character’s otherwise bottomless despair Let’s call it “Nightclerks.” It’s the best painting that Edward Hopper never painted, and you can see it at Broadway’s Booth Theatre in the new revival of “Hughie,” 

------- The Wrap
In Christopher Oram’s astonishing set design, the eerie hotel where Charlie mans the front desk in moody silence looks more like a lunatic asylum than a safe haven from the hurly-burly of Broadway in the summer of 1928. The empty lobby is two stories high, with towering glass windows and doors at the entrance, a massive reception desk, a stunning birdcage elevator, and a broad staircase leading to the darkened upper floors. Under Neil Austin’s crepuscular lighting, the place looks like a cross between the Hotel Cortez in “American Horror Story” and the Haunted House at Disneyland.
